A 24 year old man was on Friday morning fatally assaulted by a group of illegal immigrants he attempted to rob at gun point at the confluence of Umzingwane and Limpopo rivers.
It is reported that Witness Chauke, believed to be part of a gang terrorising border jumpers and smugglers along the Limpopo River, was in the company of three others who are still at large.
Sources close to investigations, said Chauke was disarmed by the border jumpers around 10 am.
“His remains were taken to Beitbridge District Hospital mortuary pending a postmortem,” said the source.
Matabeleland South Police spokesperson Chief Inspector Philisani Ndebele confirmed the incident.
